Landscapes of Hope

 

Between 1915 and 1940, hundreds of thousands of African Americans left their Southern homes to begin new lives in the North. Landscapes of Hope tells the story of black Chicagoans' environmental lives during the interwar years and undertakes a broad reassessment of the land's significance for black migrants nationwide.

Beschrijving Landscapes of Hope

In the first interdisciplinary history to frame the African American Great Migration as an environmental experience, Brian McCammack travels to Chicago's parks and beaches as well as farms and forests of the rural Midwest, where African Americans retreated to relax and reconnect with southern identities and lifestyles they had left behind.
